The Supreme Court will suffer a ‘far-right ideological lurch’

If the Senate confirms President Donald Trump’s conservative Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, the court will experience a far-right ideological lurch that will reshape American life as we know it, states a post today on Media Matters.

We can speak to this disaster with certainty because Trump and his Republican enablers have repeatedly claimed that the president’s Supreme Court nominees will dismantle historic accomplishments like the Affordable Care Act and Roe v. Wade. The 2016 Republican Party Platform flatly admitted this plan, promising Republican-appointed judges will “reverse the long line of activist decisions – including Roe, Obergefell, and the Obamacare cases.” Barrett is the right-wing ideologue they have chosen to do just that and we must take them at their word.
